Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) are one of the most studied of all the medicinal mushrooms. The mushroom fruit bodies are very slow to grow. They can take 6-8 weeks or more to form. Watch this a video posted on youtube of someone growing out a Reishi kit. Once ready, harvest and made medicinal tea and/or tinctures.
Kits may be grown indoors, and may also be fruited outdoors during the spring and fall. A humid environment is important for mushroom formation, and can be created by misting water from a spray bottle into a humidity tent.
All natural ingredients. Your kit contains a mushroom culture grown on pure hardwood sawdust and organic Canadian wheat bran. No chemical fertilizers, nor pesticides, used.
Fruiting instructions can be found here.
Kit size ~2kg (4lbs+)
